Age of War is an epic base defense strategy game where you fight a continuous war. Keep creating units to protect your base and destroy the enemy. When you earn enough XP, your civilization will evolve through the ages, offering new technologies to utilize in combat.
Battle Through the Ages
You start in simple times. Cavemen with bats and rock catapult times. Each age brings entirely new units and weapons, from cave dwellers riding dinosaurs to the futuristic hover tanks of the future age.
To stay in the game, you need to create enough units and turrets to hold back pressure from your opponent, all while developing enough force to reach their base. To defend your headquarters, you can set up turrets and develop further spots for more defensive weapons.
You have a special attack too. Artillery strikes and gods raining rocks, to name two. Special attacks are ideally used when you’re in trouble and there are lots of enemy units advancing towards you.
There are five stages of evolution in Age of War. You can advance to a new age when you’ve earned enough XP from killing your enemy’s troops! The five ages are:
- Stone age
- Castle age
- Renaissance age
- Modern age
- Future age
The Age of War Legacy
